Tonight with all of my dear readers , l am going to relate a story of an extremely dark day in my career as a professional shikaree in Nagpur , India from 1961 to 1970 . In all probability , it was the darkest day in my shikaree career. This is the story of the gaur which ended my best friend , Tobin Stakkatz's career as a professional shikaree . A little word of warning is imperative here . This story is a little graphic and depressing , so reader discretion is advised . Let us go back now to 1969. Below , l have provided a photograph taken by myself of a gaur killed by Tobin and l . However , the gaur in the photograph is not the brute which features in this article .
